The lush green of the golf course bordered by old growth Douglas Fir and dotted with lakes and wetlands, is beautifully showcased throughout this custom-built home.
This flat 1.82 AC lot is beautifully landscaped with verdant expanses of grass in both the front and back yards with mature trees providing a subtle line of demarcation where the golf course begins. Located within the gated golf course community, this home is also in a gated cul-de-sac providing and additional level of privacy and security.
A broad stone pathway leads the to front door where guests will be welcomed into the foyer where 20-foot ceilings set the tone of this open and light-filled home. The formal living and dining rooms flank the foyer. To the left, the living room has a large, arched Prairie-style window that overlooks the front yard and a wall of built-in bookshelves. Across the foyer, the dining room features a twin to the living room's arched window as well as the same wainscot and Brazilian cherry hardwood floors found throughout much of the main floor.
Just beyond the foyer is a spacious family room that leads directly out to the incredible 2,200 sq. foot, two-level cedar deck. Overlooking the backyard and golf course, this deck is ideal for entertaining. Just outside the family room's double doors, the deck is covered and features a tv that drops down from the cedar plank ceiling. With easy access from several points in the home, this deck is a central gathering point with plenty of space for sitting, eating, lounging and generally enjoying the outdoors. At the bottom of the deck is a cascading water feature that adds the sound of moving water to the ambiance.
The left wing of the home is a serene space that includes a spacious office with built-in bookcases and cabinetry as well as the third of a triumvirate of arched windows that span the front facade. The master suite makes up the bulk of the wing and is nicely separate from the busyness of the main floor. Tall, vaulted ceilings give this room a grand scale fitting for a private retreat. A curved bay of windows overlooking the backyard provides ample natural light and creates a peaceful reading nook with access to the deck. A built-in Knotty alder armoire takes care of storage and organization needs, leaving plenty of space to spread out and relax. The luxurious Master Bath includes a frameless glass shower with three heads and a large soaking tub with a corner view.
The kitchen and great room are at the opposite end of the main floor. Perfectly suited for entertaining, the kitchen is a large open space with a center island designed with retractable wheels enabling a flexible arrangement depending on particular needs. For instance, the island can be moved to add counter space for buffet serving or be used as a bar for special events. The kitchen cabinetry is Knotty alder with dentil trim, counters are a light-hued granite and the backsplash is a tumbled stone in a diamond pattern. A mosaic frame adds interest over the Decor six-burner cooktop. Appliances include a stainless steel Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator, double Decor wall ovens, Bosch dishwasher and a Decor warming drawer. The butler's pantry sits between the kitchen and dining room and includes a wet bar and wine fridge. The kitchen also includes a breakfast nook with a view to the deck. The great room opens from the kitchen and the ceilings open up as well, rising to 20 feet. Arched windows reaching nearly ceiling height frame a gorgeous view of the trees and golf course while a set of three windows overlooks the deck. A built-in Knotty alder entertainment center keeps everything organized and coordinates with the kitchen cabinetry.
Just beyond the great room is a fully appointed mud and laundry room. Access to the four-car garage is also conveniently located nearby, just off the kitchen. Outfitted to a car collector's specifications, the garage is fully finished and includes two full walls of storage cabinetry, a workspace with tool storage, a refrigerator and a Liberty safe. The garage is located on the side of the home and includes a large flat driveway with plenty of space for parking. Another driveway extends across the front of the home and also includes space for parking. The lot is fully enclosed with wrought iron fencing and gates.
